Double Box



Welcome to the It’s a Wrap Blog Hop hosted by Cool Beans By L.B. Do you like to receive gifts?
How about give them? Well this hop is all about the outside…the wrapping; Gift bags, boxes,
baskets and more. There are 22 wonderful stops on this hop and we hope you will take some
time to stop in and see everything we have created for you.

You should have arrived here from, TX Scrapper Mom http://www.txscrappermom.blogspot.com/. If you are just finding our hop in the middle you can go to the beginning at Cool Beans By L.B http://coolbeansbylb.blogspot.com/.

For my project, I created a double box! The box was created in Design Studio using the George and Basic Shapes cart. I cut two boxes using papers from DCWV Nana's Nursery stack. Once the boxes were made, I used coordinating paper from the same stack and made a cover and handle for the boxes. I printed the sentiment and cut it and the scallop circle using the Mini Monograms cart. It stays closed with a velcro closure under the scallop circle. A few ribbons and prima flowers and my box was ready to fill!

And, I filled it to the brim! There are 2 washcloths, a bib, a pair of socks and a onesie. . .all in pretty pinks and perfect for a baby girl gift!




But, using other papers, you could fill the boxes with baby boy items or school supplies or handmade cards or candy!

Speaking of candy, I am offering some fun blog candy on this hop…the Christmas Village solutions cartridge so you can start planning for those holiday gifts and decorations! For a chance to win just become a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post. On July 20, I'll use random.org to pick a winner!

Thanks for stopping by on this fun hop. Your next stop is…Suzelle from www.craftsandmorebysuzelle.blogspot.com
